Hi all, I just wanted to brag basically! Last night at meal time was the first time in our lives where all the veggies we ate on our plate, was picked from our garden!!! The corn was fantastic!!!!! We also had potatoes, zucchini, beans, and carrots. To top it off, we 'pigged out' on rhubarb (but with sugar and cream!!) We also picked 4 tomatoes (first ever tomatoes grown for us!). It has been a long, slow process for us to get to this point in our lives, but it really felt worth it yesterday! I also bottled 22 jars of beetroot and made 9 jars of beetroot chutney. Am looking forward to when the pumpkins produce! Yum. Oh, how i wish i was home full-time! Well, thanks for letting me have a moment of pride! Cheers Lyn p.s I'm new to cooking rhubarb - can anyone tell me if it's meant to go REALLY mushy when boiled?? I like to peel the skin off, then cut it into 2cm pieces and boil for about 4-5 minutes. Is there a trick to keeping it in it's shape?
